[Adherence to Oral Antihyperglycemic Agents (Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 Inhibitors and Biguanides) and Its Associated Factors in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes]. Yakugaku Zasshi. 2019;139(12):1569-1581 Authors: Hayashi A, Kubo T, Okuyama K, Tokita S, Kamei M Abstract To investigate medication adherence to oral antihyperglycemic agents and its associated factors in Japanese type 2 diabetic patients, a questionnaire survey was conducted in 983 adult patients receiving once-daily (QD) or twice-daily (BID) dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP-4 inhibitor) or BID biguanides (BG) as monotherapy at 502 pharmacies in Japan. The percentage of patients with good adherence (the proportion of days in which patients took all pills as prescribed in the past 7 days ≥80%) was high (≥90%) in any dosing regimen with no significant difference among the groups. The following factors were identified as associating with good adherence: the longer duration of type 2 diabetes (≥1 year) (p=0.002), "Feeling your disease gets worse if you don't take medications" (p=0.031), "Not forgetting to bring along your medicine when you leave home" (p=0.007), "Feeling anxiety on taking medications for long period of time" (p=0.042), "Neither feeling nor not feeling anxiety on taking medications for a long period of time" (p=0.004), "Never run out of your medicine because you get a refill on time" (p=0.035), and the lower MMAS-4 score (p

CONCLUSIONS: The lack of access to health for chronic patients with poor economic conditions who live far from the hospitals and the scarcity of medical staff to carry out socialization and treatment of chronic diseases such as diabetes for poor patients in urban areas certainly have an impact on the high number of patients of chronic diseases. Therefore, the government is expected to be able to provide easy health policies to remote rural communities in order to achieve optimal community welfare and health.
